Paper Abstract

FT-IR spectrometry has evolved from the research tool of the mid 1970s into a simple push-button technique for the routine testing laboratory in the late 1980s. This evolution has taken place in several stages, and has involved key developments in technology. There are at least three changes in the technology that have contributed - the development of rugged, compact spectrometers, the production of table-top computer systems, and the design of high-efficiency optical sampling accessories. The combination of these developments has not only extended the application of FT-IR technology into routine analysis, it has also opened the door for a potentially much larger opportunity, custom-designed instrumentation for product quality control and chemical process analysis.
